I am both a communications professional and an English language teacher.
This allows me to make the language classes relevant to the news of the day, explaining historical background, as well as to be acutely sensitive to the language issues of learning about culture.
Many of my students take both classes.
I had English pronunciation classes with Sonia and she was absolutely wonderful. The classes were engaging and interesting and very productive in my opinion.
I also participated in Sonia’s British Culture and Politics classes. I learned a lot, it was fascinating.
In few words, Sonia is amazing as a person and a teacher
I have lived in London for more than 20 years and wish I'd met Sonia when I arrived. I have learnt so much from her British Culture Classes and it's really helped me get a deeper understanding of my adopted country. I am always amazed at the range of topics she manages to teach us. I didn't know I didn't know so many things and it's great to have someone to ask.
I have had the good fortune of listening to Sonia Davies on many occasions while she discussed very timely, informative and interesting topics about British culture. As an “ex-pat” living in London it has allowed me to learn more about the Government, Geography, the Monarchy, Etiquette and even Brexit, among other pertinent topics. I highly encourage everybody to attend a talk or class with Sonia. She is insightful, knowledgeable and has a keen ability to present the subject matter in an unbiased manner allowing for robust discussions. It is a welcomed change in this era of divisive media and politics.
I cannot recommend Sonia highly enough.
Following recommendation from a friend of mine, I started one-to-one sessions with Sonia when I felt my English wasn't strong enough from a business point of view and my pronunciation could be improved. It was hard but 100% worth it and Sonia kept me on my toes while keeping lessons entertaining. It's perfect to have an opportunity to learn and be challenged while enjoying oneself!
I then discovered the group culture sessions, which were always insightful and every time, on top of having a fun time, I learned something, even though I have lived in the UK for over 20 years.
